population of liverpool

first name: Graham Rand

This is a query about a statistic I saw in Stan’s Cafe during ArtFest.
It implied, if I remember correctly, that there had been a huge population growth in Liverpool between 1770 and 1773. The recently published history of Liverpool has a table which indicates steady growth in Liverpool’s population in the 18thC. 1700
(5195), 1730 (11932), 1750 (18400), 1760 (25579), 1770 (34050), 1780 (40000), 1790 (55732), 1801 (77653).I would be interested to discover the source of your data.

THANK YOU GRAHAM FOR SPOTTING THIS – OUR LABEL HAD A TYPO – IT SHOULD HAVE READ POPULATION OF LIVERPOOL IN 1700 NOT 1770

One response to “population of liverpool

  1. Surely the data indicat that the populatin of Liverpool doubled in just under 30 years throughout the 18th century. (See 1700 to 1730 then 1730 to 1760, then 1760 to 1790) There seems to be nothing special about the period from 1700 to 1770.
